Title: Dose the discharge of fluids from the private part nullify the fast?


Asalaam Alaikum,

I have faced a situation due to which I am having my doubts whether my fast has been broken or not.

This morning after I woke up to get ready to go to work, i noticed that there is a kind of a white patch in my trousers.It

wasn't sticky or smelly.

Could you please guide me if my fast is broken or not?

Appreciate your guidance


In principle the emission of any type of fluids from one’s private parts does not invalidate the fast.

Hence, the white patch on your trousers does not invalidate your fast, irrespective of the white patch being Mazi [pre coital semen] or Mani [semen]. (1)

قلت: أرأيت رجلاً أجنب في شهر رمضان ليلًا فترك الغسل حتى طلع الفجر؟ قال: يتم صومه ذلك، وليس عليه شيء. قال: وبلغنا عن رسول الله - صلى الله عليه وسلم - أنه كان يصبح جنباً من غير احتلامٍ، ثم يصوم يومه ذلك، وذلك في شهر رمضان (4). قلت: فإن احتلم نهاراً في شهر رمضان؟ قال: فكذلك أيضاً.

ولو احتلم في نهار رمضان فأنزل لم يفطره، لقول النبي - صلى الله عليه وسلم - «ثلاث لا يفطرن الصائم: القيء، والحجامة، والاحتلام» ولأنه لا صنع له فيه فيكون كالناسي.
